Divya Bhaskar tells you the secret of expert kite-flyer, Celebrate Uttarayan with the science of kite
Thus, a Gujarati boy who flies a kite does not have to be taught. However, the art of kite flying is also a science, such as the kite’s tail (vertical string in the kite) and the curvature of the bow, its size, where to make holes in the kite to tie the kinna, to choose the kite according to the wind, When to fly etc … etc .. Thus this list becomes very long and very few people know the art of it. On this landing, Divya Bhaskar reveals to his readers his secret kite flying from a special kite-flyer.
Take the kite according to the air, keep zero in the kinna and have fun
Pushpakant Khatri, a kite-flyer living in Raja Mehta’s Pol in Kalupur area of Ahmedabad city, told the readers of Divya Bhaskar a special trick of flying kites in a scientific manner on this landing. Pushpakantbhai, who has 45 years of experience in kite flying, explained the system of kite selection according to the wind, from the purchase of the kite to the test of the kite, the method of building the kinna and the wind. The choice of the kite is as important as the kinna in which they insist on keeping a special distance between the bottom zero and the top two, i.e. one-and-a-half inches from the knot. The art of keeping a steady kite is also unique, in that just by pulling a string at the tip of a finger, the bottom kite falls directly into the air.
Lightweight plastic kite most favorites in heavy winds
Pushpakantbhai added that if it is said that there will be strong winds in Uttarayan this time, then light plastic kites will be good. Such a kite is pushed in the air and does not allow the finger to be stressed. Plastic kites can fly well if there is a lot of wind in this condition. However, if the wind goes down, Triveni paper kites can also be very useful.
‘Kite is very expensive but fond customers still exist’
Nareshbhai Modi, who owns a kite shop on Kalupur Tankshal Road, told Divya Bhaskar that our shop is 50 years old on Tankshal Road. We have been selling kites here since I was little. Earlier, there was a separate kite market on Mint Road, but now the shops are no longer the cutlery market. Now even kites have become expensive, but enthusiastic customers still come here to buy kites even after they have left the polls.
